Observing a deepening autumn not unlike the Wasatch Front’s own, Henry David Thoreau wrote: “The thinnest yellow light of November is more warming and exhilarating than any wine they tell of.”

Cheers, Utah.

After Wednesday’s record-setting warm daytime temperatures in Salt Lake County, the National Weather Service predicted Friday will see the sun bursting through partly cloudy skies over northern Utah. High temperatures will hove near a more-normal 60 degrees, down about 10 degrees from Thursday’s forecast.

Southern Utahns look for Friday highs in the upper-70s, down from Thursday’s readings near 80.

Meanwhile, the Utah Division of Air Quality graded breathability statewide as “Green,” or healthy heading toward the weekend.

Salt Lake City’s high Friday was pegged at 59, down from Thursday’s forecast for 69 degrees; Ogden looked for 57 and 65 degrees, respectively; Provo 61 and 71; Logan 58 and 64; Wendover 57 and 60; Duchesne 58 and 67; Cedar City 64 and 68; St. George 77 and 79; and Moab 68 and 73 degrees.
